The Honors Program has largely shaped my experience here at Belmont over the past three and a half years. As a freshman, it provided me with a community of students with which to take classes and form strong friendships that have remained over the past several years. The interdisciplinary nature of the classroom initiates interesting, complex and often passionate discussion among those present. The demands of the classes often pushed me beyond what I knew I could do and opened my eyes to new doors of opportunity and understanding.
I am perhaps most grateful to Dr. Thorndike, Dr. Byrne and Dr. Boan, whose offices are always open. Their availability, wisdom and friendliness have greatly enhanced my studies and overall experience in college.
